NJ: Heavy Voting, Scattered Snags

By Rob Stein
Election officials in New Jersey say they are seeing heavy voter turnout throughout the Garden State, though long lines this morning seem to be letting up as the early-morning rush of people voting on their way into works subsides.

Susan Evans, a spokesperson for the state Division of Elections, says there were reports of problems with voting machines scattered throughout the state, but the balky machines were either fixed or replaced and things seem to be going smoothly now.

Although there were reports of possibly keeping the polls open beyond 8 p.m., Evans says the polls will close at the usual time. But she stressed anyone already in line by 8 p.m. will be able to vote.
